British PM: Trump 'told me to sue the EU'

Protesters for the'Stop Trump Women's March gather in London on Friday

"It was from right here at Chequers that Prime Minister Churchill phoned President Roosevelt after Pearl Harbor", Trump said, referencing the surprise attack by the Japanese on December 7, 1941, that plunged the USA into World War II.

Theresa May and Donald Trump entered a news conference on Friday holding hands and went out of their way to praise one another's leadership, a day after the US president assailed her Brexit strategy and said one of her political opponents would make a good prime minister. "We are cracking down right now on the European Union because they have not treated the United States fairly on trading".

"We have enough difficulty with the European Union", he added.

But after talks with May at her Chequers country retreat over a lunch of Dover sole, Chiltern lamb and lemon meringue pie, Trump said he thought a post-Brexit trade deal would be possible.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, Trump criticized May's "soft Brexit" plan and said Boris Johnson, a May rival who resigned his position as foreign minister over her Brexit plans, would make an "excellent" prime minister.

Wellingborough MP Peter Bone told Sky News that Mrs May's plan "breaks all the previous red lines she had before Chequers" and had "split the party".

May has repeatedly said Brexit will happen and has ruled out a rerun of the 2016 referendum, although French President Emmanuel Macron and billionaire investor George Soros have suggested that Britain could still change its mind.

The president said he assumed Putin was ruthless, as he prepared to leave for Helsinki in advance of the summit. He would prefer to have her as a friend than an enemy, he added.

In an attempt to forge a balance between those seeking a smooth Brexit and those who fear staying too close to the EU's orbit would undermine the very nature of Brexit, May sought the approval of senior ministers for her plans on July 6.

London Mayor Sadiq Kahn, who gave the go-ahead to fly a giant baby Trump balloon in the city, has defended the protesters.

"I would have done it much differently. The weather is lovely, and this place is incredible!" Crowds gathered all over England to dump on Trump.

Trump labeled the USA -U.K. relationship "the highest level of special" and said May was an "incredible woman" doing a great job.

Various protests are planned to coincide with the U.S. leader's visit to Scotland, including a national demonstration and "carnival of resistance" in Edinburgh.

A mass protest in London on Friday drew more than 250,000 people, organisers claimed.

"We are asserting our right to demonstrate, our right to free speech", he said.

European activists are protesting U.S. President Donald Trump's upcoming appearance at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, marching through Brussels to plead for less military spending and more public money for schools and clean energy.
